Hello and welcome back to another installment of Gilmore Friday! (If you missed the first one you can catch it here!) In light of recent political events, I thought today’s post we could focus on my favorite fictional
student body president, Paris Geller. I actually had a different, and much longer post scheduled for our Gilmore Friday, but I thought it best to share something that isn’t a text heavy think piece, and maybe just the slightest bit inspiring. I figured we could all use a little Paris this week; someone who unapologetically fights for what they believe in, a speech and debate wizard, and the only person that can speak any sense into season 5 through 7 Rory Gilmore. That being said, in the name of telling it like it is, and Gilmore Friday, today I declare that we celebrate Paris Geller! I may have already given her a shout out before with my ranking of the ex loves of Rory Gilmore, but I think this week of all weeks we could use a little extra feminist inspiration in our lives. Take a break from your Facebook and Twitter timelines, and enjoy this short list of inspiring Paris moments that we can all use while we’re trying to make it in this world.
- When trying to make sense of this election.
- Envisioning your future.
- Handling a confrontation.
- Making weekend plans (not necessarily empowering, but I love it).
- Shutting down the patriarchy.
- Shutting down the patriarchy…again.
- And lastly, the best insult to have in your back pocket on a rainy day.
What is your favorite Paris Geller moment?
